Discover the heart of Madrid while tasting & learning about the Spanish cuisine. This tapas tour will start with a classic aperitivo in the gourmet Market of San Miguel, while learning about the history of the tapas markets in the country and getting some recommendations from your host. There is not better way to learn than with a glass of wine and a cheese tasting, right? Following, discover La Latina neighborhood and its hidden secrets. Our second stop is in the heart of this lively area in a small family restaurant where two wine sommeliers decided to innovate with the traditional cuisine in this charming gourmet tapas bar. After that, we need to get local, rubbing shoulders with the crowds to get the most famous sandwich of Madrid! With a local beer or a special drink (we keep the secret until you try it!) Following, we will head to the iconic Puerta del Sol, to stop in a historical tavern serving the most famous croquettes in town. After that, it's dessert time! A traditional homemade dessert with a glass of sweet wine to end in a hidden venue right in the heart of Madrid! The tour will end in Puerta del Sol where your host will help you with suggestions.
I am a food expert. I've been studying (and tasting!) the Spanish culinary scene for a few years. I am interested in the link between the food recipes and the history of the country. Therefore, together, we will explore not only historical venues, gourmet markets or local spots, but also, we will get to understand each dish and the history background of Spain through it!
